About the foundation
The Thorium MSR Foundation (Stichting Thorium MSR) is the organization behind thmsr.nl and thmsr.com. Its aim is to educate people about the use of thorium in molten salt reactor technology, because we believe it can play a vital role in solving today’s energy problems. The Thorium MSR Foundation was established on January 29, 2016.
According to the statutes of the Foundation, its goal is: a) to serve as a reliable source of information regarding nuclear technology in general and in particular the use of thorium in molten salt reactor, and b) to perform all further actions, that relate to or contribute to the aforementioned in the broadest sense.
The Foundation strives to realize its goal by using scientifically checked information, critical comparison of sources and maintaining a network of relevant scientists, developers and other experts, by participating in congresses, symposia, seminars and webinars and the like. The Foundation also wants to bring together initiatives in the field, make information on the subject broadly available, to be a platform for discussion, all in the broadest sense of the word.
About this website
Over the last decade, there has been a worldwide resurgence of interest in the use of thorium Molten Salt Reactors. Given its potential, the founders of the Thorium MSR Foundation think it is of paramount importance that there is a source where reliable, scientifically checked information can be found about these developments. The purpose of this website is to provide such information: factually accurate, objective, supported by credible sources, and made easy to understand. In a later stage, we hope to also offer an interactive platform for those who want to learn, to discuss and to participate.
The Foundation is assisted by a Scientific Council that thoroughly checks the information for scientific accuracy. Members of the council are:
